Notre Dame’s first paperless course launched this semester as part of a study into eReader technology. The “Project Management” course taught by Professor Corey Angst has quickly become known as the iPad class.
Students were loaned iPads for the semester to use how they see fit (although they didn’t know about that perk when they signed up for the class, it was a nice surprise this summer) and Professor Angst is blogging about the experience. Interest in the class has come from local media (warning: the video won’t…um.. play on an iPad because it’s Flash-based) and a few blogs.
The topic is especially on my mind because our staff of admissions counselors will be traveling this fall with iPads and we’re configuring them now. Look for us at your high school and I’m sure we’ll be posting more about our experiences this fall.
